Heading off to another retreat
Yes, it's Camp Blanding retreat time again!!!!! The car is packed with all of my sewing supplies, projects and sale room goodies. Next on the list is shower, pack my clothes and snacks, stop at Mickey D's for a large Diet Coke in a styrofoam cup and hit the road!!! My radio station is pre-selected, so I am good to go. Can't wait - a weekend of sewing with friends and of course some good food. Tonight is our traditonal retreat weekend kick-off - dinner at Sonny's - wings and mac & cheese!!!
I'll be finishing the scrappy star quilt I shared with you. It's all row-labeled and ready to go. Then it's on to Longarm Quilting by Lynn Graham for their magic! That's the last of the new Fall Market quilts. And as soon as we have names, I will share them with you. The names are the biggest challenge!!
I did want to remind you that tomorrow is week 9/block 9 of the Marcus Fabrics Friends and Companions Sew-Along. This week you will meet Lisa Shepard Stewart, Marketing Manager of Marcus Fabrics. In addition to her many jobs, Lisa authors the Marcus Mentions blog. Block 9 is the last of the blocks for the quilt and next week is the "reveal" and the instructions for finishing your quilt top - I'm on deck for that one. If you've been keeping up with us, then you should be good to go on finishing your quilt. I'll also share photos of the prizes for 2 lucky winners!!
Until next time, happy quilting,
